Título: Sustainable Development in Latin America: Financing and Policies Working in Synergy
The interest in reducing water pollution problems in Latin America has been increasing steadily during the last decades. Most countries now have central environmental authorities that recognize this as one of their main tasks. Solving the problem, however, proved to be more difficult than was initially anticipated.
This paper explores water pollution control efforts in two Andean countries, with the objective of deriving lessons on how best to approach the financing of solutions to this problem.
